We built the Long Trail Planning Guide after Beardoh hiked the LT in 2013. The goal with the planning guide was to take online resources a step further than what we had been finding while planning for the hike. For many folks, the Long Trail is their first long distance hike. We figured that having a site that was dedicated specifically to the trail would be helpful for hikers out on their first thru-hike and veterans alike.
The Long Trail Planning Guide has:
- Customized maps to help visualize Resupply Plans
- Mail Drop Information
- Gear List Recommendations & Downloadable Spreadsheets
- Beardoh!’s journal with photos
- Info on water purification, lodging, expenses, side trips, conditioning, section hike suggestions, and much more
